Kelly Clarkson: "I Never Endorsed Ron Paul!"

I was disappointed to hear that Kelly Clarkson sang at Obama's inauguration today.

Clarkson had supported Ron Paul during his campaign. She said lots of good things about him.

But then her liberal fans jumped down her throat and gave her grief for supporting him.

They said things to her like "Oh, you hate gay people?" AS THOUGH THAT'S wht Dr. Paul stood for???

And so, in a total about face, Clarkson not only voted for Obama, she SANG at his big deal today on top of it.

A question thus presents iteslf:
HOW can you go from supporting a liberty-candidate like Ron Paul to a NON-liberty, European-style socialist candidate like OBAMA???

I UNDERSTAND not supporting Romney - I sure didn't. But even though I hated Romney and the RNC/establsihment GOP with a purple passion, I sure couldn't vote for a socialist democrat either.

If Kelly Clarkson had a clue as to what Dr. Paul was all about, she would have written him in, voted for a 3rd party (protest vote) candidate, or just abstained.


It would have been better if she had NEVER supported Dr. Paul, than to abandon him when the cock crowed 3 times (ALA the disciple Peter denying Christ in the garden).

Here's a link to Clarkson shamelessly disavowing herself from Ron Paul:

Used the liberty movement to promote a music carreer then

Disowned the very people who propelled the carreer. A typical social climber,


Life goes on...

Disappointment aside, it should not distract any of us from what we have to do, and what we ARE doing. For the first time in at least two centuries, if not in history, we are spreading the word, and the vision, of liberty, private property, and self-responsibility around the world! We can do this, on an ever larger scale, whether Ron Paul gets endorsement from Rand Paul, Glen Beck, Kelly Clarkson, or anybody else.

Celebrity endorsements may be helpful in the future, to help this or that cause: peace and an anti-interventionist foreign policy, audit-the-FED, the repeal of NDAA or the Patriot Act, and some other totalitarian horrors, or re-legalizing marijuana (and maybe other drugs), but our success with these issues is dependent upon whether WE alert and educate people to the fact that freedom provides a far better way of doing things, then centralized and despotic "authority", and that the appreciation of liberty is what is going to get us what we are after.

Celebrity endorsements, or defections, are just temporary distractions!

Appreciate celebrity support or endorsements when they come, but don't rely upon them, still less solicit them. They are not important, we are!

I wondered about it too when

I wondered about it too when I saw her singing at Obama's inauguration. If she were a true Paul supporter, I doubt seriously she would've sung there. She never outright endorsed Paul, but she said she kind of liked what she had heard. Honestly, my first thought was that Obama's people paid her to sing there to upset the Paul people. It would be an attempt to lower our morale (which it didn't work for me). I'm sure they know how much we liked Kelly Clarkson for a short while. If that didn't happen, she probably did it to distance herself from the comments she made about Ron Paul (like you mentioned, liberal "friends" criticizing her for the comments). It was after those comments that her sales skyrocketed. I don't know how well they'll be doing now since she didn't stand on some kind of integrity. Good luck Kelly. I still like your music but I won't be buying anytime soon.

Well Miss Kelly...

If you HAD endorsed RP, who would really care?

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

As consolation for selling

As consolation for selling out, she got to have dinner with and meet the Obama family at the inauguration, a huge, gigantic, complimentary publicity boost.... What girl could ask for more?


simple answer to why she

simple answer to why she voted obama, Romney!!!

Ron Paul 2016

Who is she?

Hey, I've never even heard about this gal, so I really don't give a crap if she is or isn't with or not with whoever is or isn't.

Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!

Do you see thumbs down?

Our Blue Republicans did the same (voted for Obama.)

If you look closer at DP posters, some only come to spew anti-Jewish rant (some directly, some using the codeword Zionists, Rothscild or Goldman Sachs.) They really do not understand free society where Jews and Jewish bankers will do comparatively well. They are not here to promote Liberty.

I didnt realize that

If I am against the raping of the general public by big banks like Goldman Sachs that I am now a Jew hater. Thanks for clearing that up, because I thought I was standing up for myself...turns out I'm just a racist. Gosh, I better straighten up and start learning to love the big banks.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

You've got it all wrong.

People aren't voting this down because they're upset ad the poster, they're upset at Kelley Clarkson. And according to Koerner's internal polling of Ron Paul Blue Dems, the overwhelming majority of them went with Gary Johnson.

ecorob's picture

she went from 41 to 14 on the charts when...

she said she liked Dr. Ron Paul.

Now, I turn her off every time I see, or hear, her!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Exactly! She went from 41 to 14 after her comments in favor...

...of Ron Paul.

At one point, Dr. Paul was immensely popular on college campuses, giving several speeches a week to standing room only crowds.

Lots of big dollar signs there if you're an artist marketing to that age group.

If it was a money-grab ploy, then shame on her.

But if she was sincere (which I think she was at the time), then she couldn't stay principled after her liberal fans screamed bloody murder at her for supporting Dr. Paul.

All she needed to say was she supported Dr. Paul because he didn't believe in using her tax dollars to drone bomb innocent wedding parties in Pakistan.

Who, (other than Bill Kristol, FOX News, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Michael Medved, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Karl Rove, DICK Cheney, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Donald Rumsfeld, Bush, Fred Barnes, Rush Limbaugh, Mitt Romney, Obama and the CIA) could have argueed with that?

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Two points.

First of all...who cares.

Second...who cares.

Not a question but a statement.

There were a lot of dems who like Ron Paul but he was not on the ballot so like others...they voted Obama.

It's simple

She thought that the young people of America (i.e. those who buy her albums) support RP. So, she was a supporter of RP. But now that RP is just a crazy 'ol retired congressmen from Texas, she supports Obama. Whatever makes a buck.

kelly flip flopper ;p

first starts singing "pop" music then the new idol winners do better than her with country music so she switches to country.

most likely someone who interviewed her for her performance with the obamas asked her about her support of ron paul and after that nice check she probably got "changed her tune" so to speak.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Q: who the fuck cares what kelly clarkson

Or the backstreet boys, or any other pop star has to say anyway.

A: people who are not old enough to vote


who cares?

"I respect her judgement on all matters political because she sings on key and looks nice in tight jeans."


She Is A Dingbat

Have you ever heard her talk? Dingbat.


If she never supported Dr. Paul...

It would have saved me the cost of her album...

"It would have been better if she had NEVER supported Dr. Paul"

That's what happens when you build a career

who's success is measured by the approval of a fan base. Much like the relationship of corporations and their shareholders. She's got a lot of people to pay too so that's where this "fame trap" sets in. Not everyone begins their career with integrity from the start like Lupe Fiasco for example. Let's not forget that Kelly Clarkson's success was a manufactured one on American Idol.

If the GOP didn't steal the nomination from Ron Paul, I bet we wouldn't be having this conversation.

But I think there is far more value in the way things played out. The Establishment has exposed itself. Whether that's in the mainstream or not isn't really significant. Many people know regardless because the information flow is changing, becoming more organic, more accessible.

We can't fault someone for chasing the American Daydream, then expect them to be Awake and owe the awakened something. Kelly at least said the name "Ron Paul" unlike most cowards in the spotlight. She's just stuck in the system. Not for too long I hope but I really don't care what her position is.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

bah, she's a crony capitalist

or at least her management is. Singing at the coronation is a good way to sell music. She supports whoever will make her the most money.

I heard her singing...

...at the inauguration sucked bad anyway.;-)

Clarkson's comments have been

Clarkson's comments have been consistent. She liked what Ron was talking about versus the other Republican candidates, but she was a Democrat. She was exactly the kind of voter who may have voted for Ron if he had gotten the nomination instead of Romney. The GOP really screwed the pooch.

The GOP Screwed The Pooch?

I disagree. I think they were much happier w/ Obama winning than they would have been w/ Ron Paul winning.

Well said...

The vast majority

The vast majority of the electorate see political races like sports competitions where you pick either the Yankees or the Mets for example. They see no harm is switching preference.

Most members of the GOP, particularly the leadership, go through this much evaluation process; "Humm, does the candidate place an "R" by their name? If so then I'll support them." It is just like saying: "Does that person wear a Yankee uniform? If so, I'll cheer for them."

Every member the Washington State's congressional delegation who claims to be a republican is actually a democrat infiltrator who runs, calling them self a republican but votes with the democrats. When I call this fact to the attention of party leaders, they don't care as long as "republicans" win the elections.

She's a PHONY 100%

My only regret was that I was one of those who bought her CD. What a pig she is, imo. She had so much shame that she couldn't even sing into the eyes of the audience on TV. She is a disgusting, selfish young woman looking for a buck, singing for a buck, and prostituting her own values for a buck. What an idiot.

But, I agree these movie stars are shills for the elites of Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, etc., the big banks who own most of Hollywood. Look at how each and every one of them spew anti-gun rhetoric in that TV ad, then, turn around and participate in hugely violent movies firing off hundreds of rounds of automatic weapons, guns, and semi-automatics. It makes me puke!

I disagree

She gave Ron Paul a COMPLIMENT on her twitter account. MOST celebrities do not do even that much.

Also, if you notice, Kelly Clarkson never actually retracted her original statements. She never turned around and stated that she did not like Ron Paul, nor did she ever make a statement that she would have voted for Obama over Dr. Paul. It's really not fair to expect Kelly Clarkson to risk her career; she went against her father's advice by revealing her political opinion to the public and I think the fact that she stuck her neck out even a little is a lot more than you get from 99% of people in the entertainment industry.

As far as being a phony, she is being a phony towards the political establishment: yes she will take their money to play at their inauguration, but when it comes down to voting, had Obama been running against Dr. Paul, she would have been voting AGAINST Obama. That's what counts.

She never said she was voting

She never said she was voting for Ron. Calm down.

actually she did

She stated that IF Dr. Paul were to win the nomination, he would have her vote, and she also stated that it was ashame that he probably would not win.

In absence of Dr. Paul's name on the ballot, like 98% of the US public, she got duped into the, "you have 2 choices" argument, and she (probably) voted for Obama over Romney ... and honestly under a scenario where somebody believes those are their choices, it is totally understandable that somebody would NOT want to vote for Romney. As much as I think Obama is a terrible president, I could at least think of some good things to say about him, whereas I cannot think of anything nice to say about Romney.
